The Best Playlists To Beat Your Face To
By: Wanna’s World
Music and applying makeup go hand in hand or at least it should be. Having the right music playing in the background while you’re beating your face not only increases your energy levels, it does something for your self-esteem and confidence. You know how many nights Bodak Yellow by Cardi B had me thinking I was about to be the baddest in the club or how Rihanna’s Sex With Me amplified my thirst for my boo? While I may or may not have went over the preferred time limit due to twerking in the mirror, my face never looked better or happier after listening to my favourite tunes. Whether it’s time to turn up with friends before a night on the town or you desperately want to set the mood before a date, it all comes down to the right music selection. Below I’ve compiled four different playlists by women of colour to get you hype in the comfort of your own home. If R&B, Reggae or Rap/Hip-Hop, etc is your thing, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve got something with every mood in mind.
Female-Powered Playlist: If you’re in the mood for Bad B*tch anthems and love Rap/Hip with a little R&B. Listen to “Bod Gyal Edition” by Lyssa Devereaux on Spotify (https://open.spotify.com/user/22aztcxvnyivpnkiboq55fdra/playlist/6vrHjJJiTBrREpX4yvdh7C?si=J1Wd9m3BTfOuA-DJMG1SOg). You can also catch her on Twitter by the name of @haulyuhass — she drops playlists pretty often and they’re all amazing.
Rainy-Day Jams: If you’re not interested in turning up and want to listen to calm vibes with a multitude of genres, @iamnotmyhistory on Twitter will make you feel at home with her “GET WET” series. Listen on Apple Music here (https://t.co/AyMioeSW6V).
